WellSpan York Hospital named a Best Regional Hospital

Monday, July 22, 2013

U.S. News & World Report has recognized WellSpan York Hospital as one of the Best Regional Hospitals in its 2013-14 Best Hospitals publication.

WellSpan York Hospital is one of five central Pennsylvania hospitals to meet the standards for strong performance.

WellSpan York Hospital, ranked 21st in the state, was cited for seven high-performing specialties: diabetes and endocrinology, gastroenterology and GI surgery, geriatrics, nephrology, neurology and neurosurgery, pulmonology and urology.

“A hospital that emerges from our analysis as one of the best has much to be proud of,” said Avery Comarow, U.S. News & World Report health ranking editor. “Only about 15 percent of all hospitals earn a national ranking in any specialty.”

U.S. News & World Report publishes Best Hospitals to help guide patients who need a high level of care because they face a particularly difficult surgery, a challenging condition, or added risk because of other health problems or age.

Objective measures such as patient survival and safety data, the adequacy of nurse staff levels and other data largely determined the rankings in most specialties.

Other central Pennsylvania hospitals to make the Best Hospitals list are Lancaster General Hospital, Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, Holy Spirit Hospital and Lancaster Regional Medical Center.
